I had the op. For oesophageal cancer about 16 months ago my problem now is non absorption of fats ( my stools are pale and they float) I am taking Creon tabs. With every meal about 20 a day but nothing has really changed but my weight although a stone and a half less since op. Has remained constant. I just wonder if the tabs are working. The dietician keeps saying carry on take more! But I'm not convinced. What else is there? Any suggestions. I'm 75 and have always been fit and looked after myself.
